Son of a gun it's cold outside!

What if I told you you could earn (save) $ just by choosing the right clothes? They don't have to match, they don't need to be in style, they don't even need to be yours. What I am getting at here is it is costing you a fortune to heat your home to the point where you can sit around in your underwear and be snug and toasty. Unless its thermal underwear you are paying dearly for that level of comfort.The single largest consumer of energy in your home is the A/C system. Feet cold? Put on socks. Sweat suits? They aren't just for going out to get the paper anymore. Anything you can do to keep your mitts off of the thermostat is going to provide you with savings. There are people smarter than me that do studies we don't need for money we can't afford that have concluded for every degree lower you set your thermostat in the winter you'll save X-amount of money. Really? Now I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but that was information I didn't need a study to learn. Here is the basic formula in case the concept is still cloudy to you. {Heat off = $ in pocket} {Heat on = Your $ in someone elses pocket}
